Quick Overview

This journal consists of a diversity of papers all of which consider issues related to violence and abuse. Survivors of violence write of their resilience and how they will be silent no more. Practice-based papers describe their work with men who have experienced child sexual abuse, and workshops in schools designed to address issues of homophobia. A number of interviews explore areas of complexity including - how to work with the interface of domestic violence and child protection; how to engage and work with the mothers of sons who have perpetrated abuse; and how to talk about domestic violence in diverse cultural communities. Two further interviews are included as part of exploring the broader context of this work. One concerns the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and its attempts to address histories of violence in South Africa. The other, with the Just Therapy Team from Wellington New Zealand, builds upon their previous writings about partnerships of accountability.
